Haiti: Moloch Tropical
Saturday 29th January 2011 2pm-5pm
Belvedere Road SE1
Master filmmaker Raoul Peck (Lumumba, Sometimes in April) returns with a haunting film on his home country - Haiti. Peck takes us to a hilltop fortress where the nation’s president is falling apart, buckling under the pressure of civil unrest and the international community’s increasing disapproval. Crafting an almost Shakespearean tragedy in the confines of this isolated citadel, Peck delivers a searing critique of a government corrupted by power and an individual driven mad by it. Completed just months before the devastating January 12, 2010, earthquake, Moloch Tropical explores the ruinous costs of political dysfunction in Haiti.
Screening followed by discussion
If Haiti is to chart a new course as it rebuilds from the earthquake, addressing the political and human rights themes raised in this bracing film will be critical. Human Rights Watch sent a team to Haiti in February 2010 to look at issues of sexual and gender-based violence as well as human rights issues more generally in the delivery of humanitarian aid. Integrating human rights concerns into the relief operations is essential to protecting the well-being of Haitian victims, especially women, children, and other vulnerable groups. http://www.hrw.org/en/americas/haiti
